Yard waste - Leaves

Leaves and pumpkins

Put leaves in your green cart for composting.

Special instructions

Fill your green cart first. If your green cart is full:

  • Put the leaves in a paper yard waste bag.
  • Bags have a 20 kg weight limit. Make sure bags are rolled up and can be easily lifted.

Set bags at least 30 cm (one foot) to the side of your green cart. Do not lean them on the cart or place them on the cart lid.
